Esther Manito

Esther has just filmed her Live At The Apollo debut and now brings you her award winning brand-new stand-up hour ‘#NotAllMen’ at Soho Theatre, after a successful and critically acclaimed award nominated 2019 show. Esther's biographical show takes you back to the 90's: lad mags, calling landlines, the vast amount of cock n ball graffiti and trying to imagine what she should ever hope for from a future spouse!?!?! Being told by the media around her that her Middle Eastern heritage was filled with misogynistic men, and the west had sexism sorted, but 90's Essex seemed to tell a different story.

Joseph Parsons

In this sharply poignant hour of stand-up (directed by Joe Sutherland, a writer and comedian with a previous sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019), rising star Joseph Parsons looks at the joys of sport for those who love the beautiful game, and for those who don't. Parsons tells us of his experiences both of growing up closeted gay and a sports fanatic in the West Country. As a teenager, his ambitions of being a footballer scuppered by anxiety around body image and never feeling like he fitted in.
